Excellent location, great views, nice rooms and service. Hotel restaurant and bar is on back of hotel with panoramic views of ocean. Heaters outside on patio make great setting for cool nights. Huge fire pit with couches outside as well. Great cafe adjacent to hotel perfect for morning coffee while enjoying ocean views. I highly recommend this place, and would...

The Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, is without a doubt, one of the finest hotels I've had the pleasure to stay in. The decor was elegant throughout, and the lobby has breathtaking views of the ocean. But what I enjoyed most of all was the customer service, everyone we interacted with was very friendly and accommodating. I can't wait to...

This is one of the most wonderful places we have ever stayed! We booked a quick overnight trip so we could take our little ones (1 and 2 years old) to the Aquarium. We drove down in the morning, left our car with valet, and checked in at the front desk. Since check in wasn't until later, we expected to...

This was one of the 3 or 4 best hotels I have ever stayed in. Right over the ocean. Could open the doors and hear the ocean all night. Lovely rooms. Great spa and hot tubs overlooking the bay. The staff could not have been better. Superb restaurant. Great location - right at the start of Cannery Row. Wish I...

Pleasantly surprised by this hotel close to the aquarium in Monterey. Everything about the stay was perfect - the service, the room, the location, the food and the room rate. Can't say enough about how comfortable and convenient it was. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay right on the water.

From the moment I made the first phone call to the moment we checked out, this resort exceeded all expectations! The staff was incredibly friendly and always ready to help. The room was lovely, with a terrace and a Rose garden. If you can't get one of the rooms with a Bay View, these rooms with the Cannery Row view...

Just spent 3 days at this hotel and it was the best we have ever stayed at. The position, facilities and politeness of staff were second to none. Our bedroom overlooked the street which I thought would be noisy at night but we had undisturbed sleep throughout. The restaurants were great too. We especially loved the strada coffee shop which...

How many times have you shown up to a hotel and said, "This doesn't look like it did on the internet?" The images of the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa are amazing...just like the property!
